|The outdoor performance was steps|
away from what used to be
John Woolman's orchard.
Woolman spoke against slavery a century before America's Civil War, and after the play they had me stay in character so Woolman could receive two birthday gifts which showed the fruit of his labors: a copy of "The Emancipation Proclamation" and Letters from a Birmingham Jail. Woolman would be 295 today, but his words have certainly lived on. His journal has never been out of print!
So this performance was quite special on many different levels, and there's an embargo on news of another project that made this location special. I hope to post news of that soon: www.RichDrama.com/Updates.
